Subject: Historically Deceptive...
The latter half of the newsreel (concerning Austria) is almost as fictitious as the movie this would have preceded.

Austria in fact voted to repatriate with Greater Germany. Somewhere near 98.3% of Austrian voters demanded this. As for the "thousands" of occupying troops: Austrian troops occupied major German cities at the same time that German troops rolled into Austria. It was a show of solidarity and support on the part of both nations.

America and the west was lied to from the very beginning and it has continued for the following 3/4 century.

Subject: Howie Carrier and Anschluss
Two short items. The first shows a US Army prototype (developed at Fort Benning) for a mobile platform intended to carry two men in a prone position, with a .30-caliber machine gun, providing a firing position which could be shifted without the need to stand up.
The second covers the collapse of the Schussnig Ministry and the annexation of Austria by Hitler’s Reich. Footage of Panzer I tanks (no more heavily armed than the Howie Carrier, but armoured) and Luftwaffe planes.
